  • Microsoft will use Make.TV’s Live Video Cloud service for broadcasts of Mixer Matchups competitions at its retail stores.
  • Live Video Cloud lets producers pull in livestreaming content from anywhere and put it all into a single broadcast.
  • ESL and DreamHack both use Make.TV’s services and ESL recently renewed and expanded its deal with the company.

Microsoft’s Database-Link-e1521645463907 Mixer livestreaming service has enlisted Make.TV’s Database-Link-e1521645463907 cloud-powered video tech to enhance its online broadcasts of esport tournaments.
